“great place to stay near the airport”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

i had a lovely stay at Traders, the staff were so helpful, they could not do enough for you.
easy distance from the airport as i had a very late flight arrival, and 20 minutes in to town.
very comfortable room, and bed, lots of space, could open the window if you dont want air con.
fabulous breakfast, eat it outside amongst the birds and by the water.
watched the sun set over the water looking at the mosque
great swimming pool
and if you like the colour lime green - you are in for a treat

great stay for business or pleasure -not the luxury of the shangrila next door - but very comfortable and more like home....
you can always walk along to the shangri la or the souq and there is a boat ride around that area for free...

Room Tip: i asked for a quiet one, there is building work going on at one end (of course there is it is the UA...

I stayed 6 nights at the Traders in October. The hotel has a great location at the water so you have a resort feeling close tot he city. The Traders is located right next to the Shangri La with the Souk. So you can enjoy walking along the beach and do some shopping. Also there is a mini mart in the Souk which is very helpful. The superior club room was not too big but the layout of the room made it look bigger. The bed was very comfy and the shower excellent. The club lounge is good but the variety of snacks could be better. Overall a great stay and I would always come back.

Just spent two nights at Traders hotel, it exceeded expectations. From the moments of arrival to departure the staff couldn't have been more welcoming, pleasant and helpful. The hotel is fresh and modern, our room cool, clean and comfortable. The dining menu is simple but everything is freshly cooked, both lunch and evening meals include a complimentary salad bar.
The private beach was a bonus, towels and bottled water included.
A shuttle bus is available for trips to Abu Dhabi city, and to coincide with the morning tour of the Grand Mosque which is a must.
If we visit Abu Dhabi again we shall know where to stay.

Traders Hotel in Abu Dhabi is brilliant; New, fresh, sexy, elegant and spacious. The rooms are cool, large and comfortable. The people and their service are impeccable and so pleasant and welcoming. It is run with 5-star luxury yet is relaxed and easy. Excellent food choices and serves late into the evening. Beach is beautiful, fitness facilities have everything. Sister to the Shangri-la! Honestly - this has become one of our favorite vacation destinations.

Room Tip: Go for a view of the canal an the Grand Mosque!

Our biggest regret was that we were only overnighting at Traders since it was only 15mins away from Abu Dhabi International Airport to catch our morning flight home to Australia.

You could not find a cleaner, more comfortable hotel with free Wifi throughout the hotel, beach access and views across the canal. Even better was the excellent customer service provided by the multi-national staff who always greeted you with a smile and went the extra mile to see that you were looked after in every way.

If I had known the excellent quality of this hotel, I would have stayed another night as it was the perfect location to just chill, relax and wind down after a busy week on the go in Dubai & Abu Dhabi before heading home.

We travelled to the UAE for the first time to celebrate our Wedding Anniv and although we didn't receive a room upgrade we were pleasantly surprised to receive a complimentary fruit basket, half dozen red roses & a chocolate mousse anniversary cake delivered to our room courtesty of Management.

Do yourself a favour and stay at this hotel which won't break the bank, you won't regret it !!

I have stayed at quite a few hotels in Abu dhabi / Dubai and this is one of my favourites so far in the UAE. Although 4 star it felt more like some of the 5 star places I've been but without the price tag! Really friendly and helpful staff. Stylish and unfussy rooms and great breakfast with lots of choice. I liked not being right in the centre but it's easy to get taxis if you wish to go into the centre.

We came for an event at the Shangri-La and were a bit disappointed that we didnt stay there but in the Traders instead. However, it was actually really very good! Modern, sleek design & feel, super friendly service, clean & spacious rooms and bathrooms. Excellent restaurant, good facilities. Beats many European 5 star hotels hands down, and that at super fair prices. The location isn't the most picturesque but it's easy to get around. You can get to the next door souk and Shangri-La for free with little golf carts or (much nicer but a bit slower) with a boat along the artificial canal. If you stay here, try the Sofra restaurant at the Shanfgri-La at least once but go really hungry - it has an absolutely amazing buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
